HAZE

VADS CORNER - HAZE


This site is dedicated to haze/smoke. It was originally set up as a result of haze(1997) in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and the surrounding region as a result of forest fires from Kalimantan and Sumatra in Indonesia. Recently, slash and burn practices in Indonesia (Sumatra) has raised concern of another 1997 situation. (March 2000). It seems to be happening yet again in August 2002 and yet again in August 2005 and in October 2006. In fact it seems to occur almost every year since. The current episode is June 2013.

This site will be updated, from time to time and retained as a reminder to us, as to what can go wrong if we are not careful.

HAZE IN THE WIND
(SING THE TUNE OF CANDLE IN THE WIND)
BY THE ASMATICS  
 
Goodbye clear blue sky
Though we never see you anymore
We hope you've not forgotten
to come back to Singapore*
The fires won't stop burning
And no matter how hard we try
It seems we're edging closer
towards one thousand PSI
 
And it seems to me you lived your life
like a candle in the wind
Never staying a moment longer
when the haze set in
And your memory will always haunt us
when the CD sirens wail
Your candles burned out long before
our lungs completely fail ....
 
(Thanks to Joshua)
